The Special Interest Groups (SIGs) act as focal points for members of the Society within particular specialist or application areas to meet and share ideas.
There are two categories of SIGs: those existing as an autonomous group in their own right and/or jointly affiliated to an organisation other than RSPSoc, called Affiliated Special Interest Groups and those wholly owned by RSPSoc. Both types aim to:
- Convene one technical meeting a year with not less than one meeting every two years.
- Appoint a Convenor who will liaise with members of Council.
- Supply an annual report and, from time to time, report to RSPSoc Council through the SIG committee.
- Respond to enquiries from established and joining RSPSoc members about the SIG
See below for a list of current SIGs operating in RSPSoc. If you would like to join one, contact the SIG convener.
